Yes Bowdoin College! Hope more colleges, universities and employers step up to amplify their community's support of #BlackLivesMatter, and that the work and action doesn't stop there.
The Office of Inclusion and Diversity and the Office of the President have launched a matching gift program inspired by a student request. Any Bowdoin student, faculty, staff, and alumni gifts to @BlackLivesMatter, the NAACP, or one of the following Maine organizations between Saturday, June 6th, and Monday, June 15, will be matched dollar for dollar per individual, up to $250 per gift:
Maine Community Foundation
Maine Inside Out
Maine Youth Justice
The For Us, By Us Fund
Bowdoin students, faculty, staff, and alumni wishing to take advantage of this opportunity to increase the impact of their contribution should simply send a copy or screenshot of their gift receipt to [email protected].
Edit: the caption was edited to reflect it is "matched dollar for dollar per individual, up to $250 per gift."
